My body needs a high fibre diet. A typical day for me might include:
Cheerios (3/4c) @ 110 calories, 2g fibre
Oat Bran (2 Tbsp) @ 59 calories, 3g fibre
Wheat Germ (2 Tbsp) @ 45 calories, 2g fibre
Hemp Hearts (10g) @ 57 calories, 1g fibre
Blueberries (100g) @ 56 calories, 2g fibre
Cauliflower (1c cooked) @ 28 calories, 4g fibre
Romaine lettuce (1c) @ 8 calories, 1g fibre
Spinach raw (1c) @ 7 calories, 0.7g fibre
Carrots, raw (100g) @ 41 calories, 3g fibre
Brussels Sprouts (100g) @ 36 calories, 3g fibre
Raspberries (100g) @ 49 calories, 7g fibre
Popcorn (3c) @ 93 calories, 3.6g fibre
Dark Chocolate (10g) @ 60 calories, 1g fibre
Dutch Processed Cocoa (7g) @ 30 calories, 2g fibre
An older chart on fibre content, that differentiates between soluble and insoluble, that I find really useful is found at: huhs.harvard.edu/assets/file/ourservices/s
Hope you find some of this useful!
Afraid of a colonoscopy? Believe me - they are much less frightening than surgery and chemotherapy.
Colonoscopies allow polyps to be removed before they can become cancer, or let cancers be found before they are too widespread. If you are 50 or older, or have any symptoms, please don't let fear stop you from covering your butt.
